Global Jesuit Educational Initiatives

Jesuit Higher Education Sector

Loyola University Chicago (LUC) is currently supporting two global Jesuit educational initiatives: the IJEP and the Democracy, Culture and Catholicism International Research Project (DCCIRP). The DCCIRP began as a project within LUC’s Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage.  For information on the DCCIRP, go to www.luc.edu/dccirp.

IJEP is housed within LUC’s new Institute for Urban Environmental Sustainability. Both initiatives have been inspired and supported by the Chancellor of Loyola University Chicago, Fr. Michael Garanzini, S.J., who also holds the position of Secretary for Higher Education for the Society of Jesus. 

Among its several tasks, the Secretariat for Higher Education in the Society of Jesus encourages networking among Jesuit universities worldwide to address current global issues on a global scale. The IJEP and the DCCIRP are examples of this work, drawing together scholars and students from Jesuits institutions worldwide in order to create new research and instruction on pressing international challenges.  News about these Global Jesuit Educational Initiatives can also be found at the Jesuit Curia (www.sjweb.info) and Jesuit Commons (jesuitcommons.org) websites.
